Annual Transmission Maintenance to Keep You on the Road and Earning Money

transmission flushDo you use your car for business? Are you one of the many people out there working the gig economy, running deliveries and doing odd tasks here and there just to make ends meet? If either is true, your vehicle is a valuable asset and a tool that you can’t afford to be without. Your transmission should not be forgotten in your annual maintenance. And, if you get it before the end of the year, it could be a tax deductible expense.

Transmission Flushes

You may not need to get a full transmission service every year, but you should get them on a regular basis. How often you drive will play a big role in how often you should have these flushes done. Most older models recommend a full transmission service every 30,000 miles, but some newer models can go up to 50,000 miles between servicing the transmission.

 

Of course, the above information is for automatic transmissions. Manual transmissions are a bit trickier, and you should strictly follow manufacturer instructions. Ask an expert tech if you’re unsure if it’s time to service your manual transmission.

Full Transmission Service

If you get a full transmission service, it will include the transmission flush and replacing the fluid, but it should also include some other tasks. You should get a complete filter replacement and a pan cleaning or replacement. By the time we are done, your vehicle should be running almost like new. 

Between Servicing

You should really have a mechanic check up on your car every so often, and since you’re using your vehicle for employment it is assumed you are driving a lot. To keep things running smoothly and avoid additional problems or maintenance issues, you should get some additional TLC for your transmission between annual servicing.

 

Each time your mechanic has their hands on your car they should check your fluids, paying special attention to fluid level, fluid color, fluid smell, and cleanliness. From there the mechanic can determine if there is an issue with your vehicle, or if you are good to go. Often such measures prevent more expensive repairs later.
